Indigestion

 

Indigestion, also called dyspepsia, can involve a range of unpleasant symptoms that occur after eating, from bloating, stomach rumbling and abdominal cramps to wind, nausea and vomiting. For many sufferers it is heartburn that causes most distress. To digest food, the stomach (which has a protective mucous lining) produces more than a litre of hydrochloric acid a day. If acid moves up the delicate tissue of the oesophagus, (which lacks a protective coating), it produces a burning sensation called heartburn, or gastroesophageal reflux. If the oesophagus becomes inflamed it can cause severe chest pain indistinguishable from angina.

 

Stomach acid usually stays where it belongs, thanks to the action of the lower oesophageal sphincter, a muscle that relaxes only to admit food into the stomach and then shuts tightly. But sometimes it does not close properly, which allows the contents of the stomach to flow back into the oesophagus and causes heartburn. Being overweight, pregnant or a smoker weakens the sphincter. Certain foods, drinks (such as chocolate, peppermint, orange juice and coffee) and drugs cause the lower sphincter to relax. Overeating stimulates prolonged acid production to digest extra food. Stress or anxiety can disrupt the action of the stomach and intestinal muscles necessary for digestion.

 

Did you know?

 

Eat little and often to minimise production of stomach acid

 

Use gravity to help prevent reflux by sleeping with the head of your bed elevated by about six inches.

 

As a warm, soothing end to a meal, try herbal teas such as chamomile, ginger, slippery elm, marshmallow, meadowsweet or fennel, singly or in combination. Fennel can ease nausea and bloating caused by wind.
